Sydney Harbour Bridge
Sydney landmarks harbour bridge were on my agenda when I spent a couple of days in Sydney in 2005. This was my first stop on an exciting around the world trip to San Francisco, Miami, Rio de Janeiro for Carnival, north East coast of Brazil, Paris, Bangkok and Pattaya.
The magnificent Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge are two of the most recognisable structures in the world.
Looking down from Centrepoint Tower at the Anzac memorial, lest we forget.
Located in Hyde Park it was opened on 24 November 1934 to commemorate world war one Australian military personnel who lost their lives.
Centrpoint Tower a great Sydney Landmark
The photo looking down on the Anzac Memorial building was taken from the restaurant in Centrepoint Tower.
The Manly ferry can certainly also be regarded as a Sydney landmark, South Steyne is now a Floating Restaurant and Function Centre.

Circular Quay is a focal point for many Sydney celebrations throughout the year.
Sydney Opera House
Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the facility formally opened on 20 October 1973 after a gestation beginning with Utzon’s 1957 selection as winner of an international design competition. The NSW Government, led by Premier Joseph Cahill, authorised work to begin in 1958, with Utzon directing construction. The government’s decision to build Utzon’s design is often overshadowed by circumstances that followed, including cost and scheduling overruns as well as the architect’s ultimate resignation.

Though its name suggests a single venue, the project comprises multiple performance venues which together are among the busiest performing arts centres in the world — hosting over 1,500 performances each year attended by some 1.2 million people.
The Rocks overlooking Circular Quay
The oldest part of Sydney was founded in 1788 as a penal colony.
Bill Austin from Wiltshire
My friend Bill jumped out of planes 100s of times when he was in the Paras so climbing the bridge was a piece of cake for him. 🙂
Doyles at Watsons Bay
Certainly one of Sydney’s well known landmarks, world famous for the fish & chips.
Opened in December 1995, costing $170 million to build, it’s a link between Sydney City and the western suburbs.
